Should smokeless, nicotine-containing e-cigarettes be regulated by the government, along with traditional tobacco products? We all know by now that smoking is unhealthy. It’s been associated with lung cancer and a long list of other ailments. The beauty of AmericaneLiquidStore™ e-cigarettes, on the other hand, is that they provide all the pleasure of that nicotine boost that so many of us crave, in a variety of delightfully flavored vapors, but without the harmful additives of traditional cigarettes. Those who want to stop smoking traditional cigarettes have found e-cigarettes a great transition tool.
What does “Addiction” Even Mean?
Is this nicotine “addictive,” though? Perhaps it’s time to re-frame the discussion about what “addictive” even means. Is it possible to be dangerously addicted to food, for instance? We’ve heard for decades now that an ample waistline can lead to serious health problems. To top it all off, packing on the pounds is not only unhealthy; it’s downright unattractive.
So, what if you could save both your lungs and your waistline (and save yourself from the most dangerous addictions) without sacrificing great taste and pleasure? What’s more, what if all the great flavor could be yours without the fattening and extremely addictive (and dangerous) properties of fatty, sugary foods like Oreo cookies?
Which is Worse, Coffee, Nicotine — or Cookies?
Yes, you heard that right. A recent study by a group of students at Connecticut College strongly implies that when it comes to addictive and dangerous substances, you should probably be more worried about Oreos than e-cigarettes. According to the study, the association that rats developed with Oreos was surprisingly strong. In fact, it was addictive. The study argues that such fatty, sugary foods stimulate the brain in much the same way that injections of cocaine and morphine do!
It’s definitely time to re-think how we define the word “addictive.” Why is there so much talk about regulating nicotine, when any child can walk into a grocery store and buy a huge package containing a product as highly addictive as Oreos? Maybe the government should regulate Oreos too.
Stop Smoking with E-Cigarettes
Let’s face it: “addiction” is a relative term. A lot of things are addictive. Caffeine is a drug that’s been shown to have some addictive properties (think of that withdrawal headache you get when you don’t get your morning coffee) — and yet we safely consume it at the start of each day. Why? Because it gives us pleasure.
With AmericaneLiquidStore™’s e-cigarette products, consumers can enjoy the pleasure of nicotine, especially when they want to stop smoking traditional cigarettes.
